Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #4 by Joshua Williamson - Book Review
From the publisher: [REDACTED BY ORDER OF TASK FORCE X DIRECTOR AMANDA WALLER] and [REDACTED] crew of unstoppable [REDACTED] besiege Belle Reve to take possession of the lost [REDACTED], and only the unbelievable team-up of the Justice League and the Suicide Squad can prevent [REDACTED] from taking revenge on Amanda Waller!
In the issue #4 of Justice League vs. Suicide Squad, Maxwell Lord's team of villains attacks Belle Reve penitentiary. What they find is both the Justice League and the Suicide Squad waiting for them. What ensues is an issue long battle, full of mayhem, individual moments, and odd team-ups. Joshua Williamson continues to do a fine job of balancing the storyline line of this series with the large number of characters, giving each one their moments while constantly moving the plot along. In addition to the all out battle, Lord's true purpose in attacking Belle Reve is revealed. And the scope of what he is planning may be too big for the Suicide Squad and the Justice League to handle.
This continues to be a fun series, with all a reader could hope for in a series titled Justice League vs. Suicide Squad. It is big, loud, and entertaining, with Williamson raising the stakes higher with each subsequent issue. I highly recommend this series, and can't wait to see where it goes from here.
I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.
